Bulldog becomes first Fairtrade male grooming company

By shinychris on February 15th, 2010

BulldogFairtradegroup.jpg Bulldog has become the first male grooming company to launch a range of Fairtrade products. The new range, which consists of Bulldog Eco-System Shave Gel and Bulldog Eco-System Moisturiser will launch ahead of Fairtrade Fortnight (22nd February to 4th March).

The new products include amazing natural Fairtrade ingredients from across the globe. The range contains green tea from Sri Lanka, organic shea butter from Ghana, organic sugar from Paraguay, sesame seed oil from Nicaragua, and Brazil nut oil from Peru.

Bulldog Eco-System Shave Gel – (175ml, RRP £3.69) – Containing Fairtrade Green Tea from Sri Lanka, Organic Sugar from Paraguay and a unique blend of eight essential oils to soothe the skin following the rigors of shaving.

Bulldog Eco-System Moisturiser - (100ml, RRP £6.49) – Containing Fairtrade organic shea butter from Ghana, Fairtrade sesame seed oil from Nicaragua and Fairtrade Brazil nut oil from Peru and a unique blend of eight essential oils to hydrate the skin.

The Bulldog range was born out of frustration that there were no options available for switched-on men who wanted to reduce the number of man-made chemicals in their bathrooms.

The Fairtrade Foundation was established to focus on better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest and weakest producers.

It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives. More than 7 million people now benefit from Fairtrade, with products coming from 58 developing countries all around the world.

Winter does bad things to your face, central heating dries it out, icy cold chaps it and makes it sensitive and all that blowing your nose hasn’t helped.

Now is the time to moisturise but don’t even bother unless your skin is clean, a simple unfragranced face wash and lots of lukewarm water should do the trick. Shaving will exfoliate the beard area of the skin, but try some gentle rubbing with a damp facecloth to your nose and forehead to allow the skin to absorb your moisturiser. Any questions? Post them on our Facebook Blog Networks page!

Kiehl’s Facial Fuel

By admin on January 15th, 2008

Kiehls_2So, over the next few weeks I will be road-testing some men’s grooming products for the pages of Brandish.
First up is Kiehl’s Facial Fuel moisturiser, which promises to “uplift dull, fatigued skin”. Vitamin C and E, chestnut extract and soy, will apparently reinvigorate your skin and help protect it from the ravages of modern life.
I know, it’s like “Good one Kiehl’s” but I have to say, I’m sold. I’ve been wearing it for a few weeks now and the number of people who have, unprompted, said I look fresh and young has reached double figures. In that there’s two of them.
Still two ain’t bad – and neither of them knew about this experiment. Plus I really really want to believe it.
What I can be sure of is that it smells nice – all citrussy. It’s a lotion, which is good for greasy skin (creams are too heavy boys!) and it’s absorbed through your pores like a rabbit down a hole. It also gives you a little tingly sensation, which is fun. I’m a total convert.
